Turning a negative into a positive

In the last couple of weeks life here has become crazy.  Hectic, busy, chaotic etc.

To regain balance and order I have made a few tough calls.

One being that for the next few weeks I will only be blogging on a Friday.  Things I Know will be here at 6am every Friday like always.

For ages now I have been so frustrated with the lack of time available to not only write for my own blog but to read and comment on others.  Last week is a prime example where I have not even finished reading the awesome linkers for I Must Confess let alone started on all the linkers to #tik.

I had a plan a few weeks ago which involved writing at the start of the week then be able to kick back and read for the rest of the week.  It did not work.

This little break sounds like a negative however I assure you I am looking at it very positively.  I will now be able to catch up on all the blog reading I have missed.  Which I am looking forward to doing.  Plus I will be able to do all the little bits on my own blog which have been bugging me for ages.  The first being a blog roll.

I will still be around on facey and instagram and hopefully be more connected than ever.  I may even throw in a couple of sneaky posts as there are a couple of things going on that I want to be a part of.  One example is Emma from Five Degrees Of Chaos who is hosting a breast feeding linky party which I am hoping to join in.

See you all on Fridays and then back on the 1st of September for even more blogging fun.

Linking up with Essentially Jess for #ibot, Ms Mystery Case for I Must Confess and One Mother Hen for #openslather


  1. Sometimes living has to take preference over blogging !!! I totally get it - that's what happened for me a few weeks ago for the prior 6 weeks !
    Have the best day and, while I won't catch up this Friday, I'm sure I will be back next week when there will be lots that I know about saying goodbye to my baby !!!!
    Me xox

  2. It can be quite a commitment. After many years of blogging, I've found once a week is a nice groove for me. Enjoy your break x

  3. I am totally over getting annoyed with myself if I don't blog as often as I would like. You just have to do what is best for you! xx N

  4. It's probably better to just pick a day or time, like once a week and stick it to it consistently instead of being all over the shop like I am. Ahem. No idea how people blog every day with small children at home and paid work as well. I can't manage it with no work and kids at school! Good luck with your plan. xo

  5. Go you for taking a stand. This blogging thing can suck the life and time out of us if we let it. See you soon gorgeous :) x

  6. I know exactly how you are feeling Ann, not enough hours in a day. I'd like to be a blog whore and link up all over town, but in reality I don't have the time to and feel bad if I don't get to return and read some blogs, so I don't. Look forward to reading your awesomeness on a Friday :)

  7. We all have to take a step back every once in a while. Real life has to take priority over virtual.

  8. You have hit the nail on the head. At the end of the day it all comes down to balance and i sounds as if you are finding yours.
